Extreme Networks expands vista for Mobile World

Extreme Networks, Inc. today announced its vision for network mobility in the enterprise that reduces infrastructure and operational complexity and creates a network capable of providing pervasive, predictable access, powerful awareness and control for IT.

Expectations of the network have changed. With explosive growth in mobility driven by increasing diversity in the number and breadth of tablets, smartphones and media expected to continue, the burden on IT continues to increase. The network has to converge into a single platform that simplifies the user experience, automates tasks for IT, and enables the expansion and diversification of services.

Mobility is no longer relegated to the portability of devices connected to a wireless network. Mobility today means that the network must orchestrate the movement of people, machines and content connecting to it, while adding intelligence to events, policies and business processes. “Extreme Networks’ vision addresses the expectations of CIO’s in tackling mobility in the network as part of what we label the Anywhere Networking Revolution,” said Zeus Kerravala, senior vice president and distinguished research fellow at the Yankee Group.

“Extreme Networks has traditionally delivered mission critical connectivity, and for the mobile world, its vision raises the bar for organizations to transition from disparate network infrastructures and begin to embrace the exciting future of mobility, creating a fluid enterprise from the converged edge to the data center and cloud.” “Extreme Networks solutions are geared for the new mobile world by helping to eliminate inconsistencies, meeting the expectation of users however they connect, while also maintaining our firm commitment to best-of-breed networking,” said Oscar Rodriguez, president and CEO of Extreme Networks. “From the campus network to the cloud, our extensibility and features delivered with ExtremeXOS
